January 15, 2019 – TORONTO, ONTARIO, CANADA– Converge Technology Solutions Corp. (“Converge” or “the Company”) (TSXV:CTS) today announces the creation of a CIO Advisory Service and welcomes Healthcare veteran Ronaldo Möntmann to the position of CIO Advisor.

“CIOs are facing an unprecedented pressure from all sides”, said Möntmann. “Every digital transaction must be value added. Technology investments, usually second to labor costs, must be well aligned with the organization’s strategic goals to yield a positive return. The new wave of technological breakthroughs brings tremendous innovative capabilities to organizations, and they must be well understood and articulated in the boardroom, where decisions are made. Therefore, it is critically important to have a sound strategy for Cloud, IoT, Blockchain, and Artificial Intelligence/Machine Learning as these technologies will revolutionize businesses through agility and innovation, thus positively impacting the bottom line”.
Möntmann adds that, “the CIO’s credibility is also tied into running complex technology infrastructure as a well-oiled engine, keeping the lights on 100% of the time, while managing and advancing their resources and strengthening strategic partnerships with key technology solution providers. Lastly, the best IT organizations are the ones whose leadership teams have successfully implemented an effective IT governance program that combines technology acumen with relevant knowledge from other areas such as Information Security, Project Management, Procurement, Vendor Management, Legal, Compliance and Risk Management.”
Möntmann is an adjunct professor of information security at a major private research university in Florida; he is a frequent speaker, lecturer and presenter in professional forums.
